Everyone’s skin type is different. Honestly, even my own skin type varies from day to day LOL. Also, the older I get the more I I care about my skincare routine. I have tried a ton of different products and although I do like to change it up frequently I do have some of my favorite products that are always a part of the routine so I’m going to share those today.
This post isn’t about telling you to buy all of the products I use. I am just sharing what works for me but this post is to help guide you in making sure that you are using the products you do have correctly! Just making sure you are getting your money’s worth girl!
Morning Skincare routine
Cleanser: I really love Cetaphil and Aveeno. I will link everything below that I really like. I have tried pricier ones that work really great as well but if I am going to splurge on skincare. I would rather it be on serums or moisturizer.
Antioxidant Serum: Antioxidant Serums are super important because they protect your skin from things like UV rays, blue light and pollution! All of these damage your skin cells causing inflammation and deplete collagen levels. There are so many good ones out there but below I will link my favorites, Whatever you choose, just make sure you are incorporating this into your skincare routine!
Moisturizer: I go back and forth between all of these below but I have used the Murad one for years!
Sunscreen: Even though the Murad Vitmain C moisturizer has SPF, I will still put a sunscreen product on.
Night Time Skincare Routine
Cleanser: I always double cleanse at night. I do not use makeup wipes. I will use the same 2 cleansers from my AM routine but every other night I will use this exfoliating cleaner.
Toner: Again, I go back and forth between the Tula and Thayer’s Witch Hazel.
Serums/Treatments: This is the step in your night time routine where you are treating your specific skin type. Maybe this is where you are putting on your acne treatment, retinol, glycolic acid, etc. This is the fun part 🙂 Although I do like to switch up my serums and treatments, this is usually what I will do: Monday, Wednesday & Friday I put on retinol. Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays I put on glycolic acid. Sundays it’s usually differents sheet masks I am trying out! Linking my favorite spot treatment, serums and retinol and glycolic products below.
Eye Cream: Same products from my daytime routine.
Moisturizing Night Cream: Linking some of my favorites for all price points.
Neck Cream: Since the skin on our neck is thinner it’s more prone to show signs of aging quicker. Whether you choose to use some of your existing product on your neck or a separate moisturizer like I do, just make sure you are showing your neck some love!
Facial Oil: Some people apply facial oil both morning and night but I only put it on in the evening. Facial oils can help with adding moisture back into dull and dry skin. It also helps with wrinkle prevention and adds extra nourishment. Basically it’s an added bonus to your skincare routine that can help with hydration and give you that healthy glow. And if you are thinking, OMG this is already like $100 in a skincare routine, have no fear I have found 2 AH-MAZING facial oils that will be a gift to your skin and they are both under $15!
I swap between these two every other night.
Lip Treatment: Yes, this Laneige Sleep Mask is pretty good but you don’t need to spend $22 on a lip treatment. Just make sure you are putting something on your lips before you go to bed. Chapstick is perfect too! If I am not using the Laneige Sleep Mask I use Aquaphor. But not the Aquaphor lip treament. For some reason, that doesn’t well for me. I just get the smallest tube of the healing ointment and use it as chapstick at night. Works like a charm for my dry lips!
I hope this post was helpful! Please let me know if you have any questions or need other recommendations!
Oh also these towels are amazing for when you are doing your face washing. You won’t splash water all over the place!
